The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has
lifted the bans on large electronic devices aboard U.S.-bound flights from both
Kuwait International Airport and Jordan's Queen Alia International Airport.
Royal Jordanian president and CEO Stefan Pichler said Amman, Jordan's airport
has implemented "enhanced security measures" to meet DHS
requirements, and the U.S. Transportation Security Administration confirmed
that Kuwait's airport has, as well. Of the 10 airports listed in the bans,
which took effect in
March, only four remain—in Cairo, Egypt; Casablanca, Morocco; and Riyadh
and Jeddah, Saudi Arabia—and all but Cairo have said they expect their bans to
be lifted this month.
